Day 3
Thursday, January 05, 2017      3 comments

150.6 this morning. Less than a pound to see a new "tens" place number. Today I agree to cater an event next week, but I asked that they have someone else do the desserts. I just don't trust myself. This afternoon I gave in to the te... Read more
Day 2

Yesterday, my restart day, I was at 152.2. Today I am at 151.8. I count today as a success because I had no sugar nor flour, I ate 3 meals, no snacks, measured my food, and best of all, shopped at Costco WITHOUT ANY TASTING OF SAMPLES!... Read more
A new approach
Tuesday, January 03, 2017      2 comments

It seems I only do updates when I am getting back on track. After a month of non-stop sugar, I'm ready to admit that I am an addict. I can't have just a little. I can't walk through the kitchen when sweets are around without snitching a littl... Read more
Yet again...now trying Whole30
Monday, January 04, 2016      2 comments

158.4 on the scale this morning... ugh. I really let myself go from Thanksgiving to New Year's, then even indulged in "getting rid" of the cookies, ice cream, candy, etc. so that I would be ready to start the Whole 30 today. Day 1 Whole 30... Read more

I have been indulging for way too long. I go to the gym, but undo all the effort with very undisciplined eating. I've been kidding myself that I could stay on top of it, but I think it is on top (and bottom and sides) on me. My thighs a... Read more
Sunday on the farm
Sunday, June 24, 2012      3 comments

Before church today, I picked about 1 cup of raspberries and 2 pounds of rhubarb. After church, I put the poison ivy on notice and attacked it with 2 gallons of RoundUp. I prefer organic gardening, but after several bad cases that put me... Read more

Last summer I ate a low carb diet, I ran most every day, and I worked like crazy in the garden. I lost 25 pounds. I was looking forward to losing another 10 over the winter. I said I would keep up the running routine even through the cold w... Read more

I've been SO slack this fall and winter, eating way too many carbs. Now I'm 10 pounds heavier than I was end the end of summer 2011, but at least that is still almost 20 pounds less than where I was at this time last year. So today I res... Read more

Today I am attempting to do something I have never done before... fasting for someone else. Our bishop sent out a notice asking for fasting and prayers for healing for a pastor who is dear to us. He has had excruciating back pain for a couple ... Read more

I love celebrating Christmas! Although I have been loose with my nutrition and fitness due to an erratic schedule over the past two weeks, I am maintaining my weight pretty well. I know I'll get back on track when we return home Monday. ... Read more
